Hi guys am about to clock 4K kms.

My FE is around 18-19kmpl with 95% AC on.

Except for minor rattles in the doors which mushroomed few days back, everything is fine.

hi SOUM, how about your black beauty.any updates

Hi thereal, BLACK BEAUTY is doing fine and has started to behave like a rattle snake.... Stong movements, speedy, respected and does rattle when not happy with the road condition. Have also noticed a marginal drop in FE. May be because of the drive mostly in low gears on short distance travels to my office.

Great looker there!

The rear though looks 'too busy'-have you thought about debadging?(especially the VDi and the Maruti suzuki stickers)

Thanks Vicky. The alloys are "League" make and the tyres are Yoko - ES100 - 195/60/15. The Dzire grill cost me around 1250/- (all inclusive)

Jaggu what a coincidence !!! In fact I wanted a white car in the first place. Got frustrated with the wait period and clamped on to the black. No regrets ofcourse. Thanks to all for their nice words of encouragement.

Point taken dude.. Scared of the left behind marks post debadging. Any idea on how to handle that?

Someone also suggested for some light body graphics. Your opinion on it.....

THEREAL,
Sorry to hear that, really unfortunate and sad. Is your bumper dented or the dent is on the body? If it is on the bumper, dont you worry. They get removed pretty well and you can hardly feel the patch without having to replace your bumper.

I was away for some time.... You seem to be flying around with your car and why not, when you can manage that excellent FE. Great going.

The black looks awesome.Did you do any sort of coating or polishing?

Coz the SX4's in black look a lot more dull

Have a look at this thread on how to de-badge. I guess the results will be great on your black car.

No to graphics personally, as i am a 'sleeper' guy when it come to cars!

Guys any idea on the same.
